Original Press Release:

Union Dual Lane Core Feeder

The Union Tool Corporation offers a new Core Feeder for feeding plywood cores to engineered flooring laminating systems. The machine is designed to automatically feed two stacks of plywood cores up to 12” wide into Union Hot Melt Roller Coaters. The feeders utilize two independent lanes, which feed separately and on demand. Each lane holds its own hopper rack system that holds stacked cores. These can accommodate varying core widths. All cores are fed from the bottom of each stack via two independent pusher cylinders.

These Core Feeders include core thickness plate adjustments to insure only one board from each lane is fed at one time. Cycle rates of 12 cores per lane per minute can be achieved. Engineered wood flooring systems also include a hot melt roller coater, lay-up conveyor and multi-nip roll machine. The hot melt roller coater coats plywood with adhesive and the lay-up conveyor allows a piece of veneer to be placed on top of the coated plywood. The multi-nip roll machine is then used for pressing the two pieces together. Engineered flooring is used as an alternative to hardwood flooring. Other coating/laminating systems are also available from Union Tool.
